Matthew Weiner on sexual harassment allegations: "It's great that we're having this conversation."



Weiner's statement:
"The allegation is not true.
[...]
For like 92 hours of the show, we wanted people to be having this conversation. It's great that we're having it. It's a very serious issue. It's great that we're having this conversation.
[...]
I don't want to speak to someone else's character, but I will say this: I have hired dozens of women over the years and dozens of people. I am a demanding boss. Especially in the early years, it was very hard to do it. I had a lot of stress and - you know this - it's very lonely. When I think back on it, if I had to do it differently, letting people go and being mad about having to rewrite everything - I was just angry a lot of the time.
[...]
The person I am now would definitely do it in a different way. [He wants to thank those he's worked with over the years for their support.]" (Gee, guess now we have confirmation on why the cast/crew of Mad Men has been so deathly silent.) "They know how important this is to me and they know the kind of person I am."

Weiner's statement comes on the heels of Mad Men's consulting producer Marti Noxon supporting Kater Gordon's allegations, as well as calling him an "emotional terrorist".

ONTD, have you ever cribbed your fake woke non-apology from The Incredible Hulk and/or a recurring ONTD meme?
